PREPARATIONS FOR AN EXECUTION
THAT D DN'T TAKE PLACE.
ftie Garrote, Instnimeot of Execution In
the Philippine Islands How CrimtnaJa
Are Choked to Death Sympathy of Ten
1 went to se a criminal executed by the
method known as the "garrote." When 1
reached tUe spct the avenue and the road way
to the jail wag packed with natives of all
shades, as wa every place in the vicinity
whero a view of the Hold and scaffold was
possible. 1 be iove there were fully 10,000
natives there men, women and children
aud as they have o weakness for bright colors
in their scanty garments) they formed a very
"circus poster" picture. In a double hollow
square around the scaffold was a regimnnt of
infantry, Spanish and native, and a cavalry
company occupied a position in double linn
at the extrenu right. Under the bamboo
trees that line l he avenue and jail roadway,
and in the shade of the jail wall, were
k-athered jyroii of Europeans and Spanish
army ollio-rs, but the soldiers and native
spectators wem exposed to the direct rays of
the sun, which 1 could not have endured for
any groat lung-.h of tiniu. I was armed wih
a good sun ur ttirc-lla, but 1 sought a shady
place und:?r some liaitilxxt trees just as soon
us I could pet I hero.
DESCUIFTIOX OF TFIE GARROTE.
To the l.jft ot tlio center of the Held stood
the scaffold and "garrote." A merely cas
ual glance nt i is calculated to send a thrill
of horror through every filter of the lody,
for it seems to bo one of tho cruelost instru
ments of death imaginable. It can bo briefly
described. It consists only of a strong up
right io.st, midway upon which projects a
piece of inch board for tho condemned to sit
upon. It isn't a very comfortable seat, but
he probably nover gives it a thought after
the execution liegins. Above tho seat, placed
at a proper 1 eight to catch the prisoner's
neck, is the "parrot." It is a screw lever
attached to an iron collar, and looks as if it
might be a letter copying press slightly re
constructed. The screw does not pass
through the liost, but through a flat iron
band which pisses around to the front, be
ing held in p ace by grooves in the wood.
The condemned, with his hands and feet
heavily managed, is placed upon the seat
and his body i-i bound firmly with cords to
the upright pent. The flat iron band is then
clasped secureiy about his throat, aud at a
signal from the proper oflicial the execu
tioner begins to turn the screw very much
as you would turn the screw on a copying
press. Tho nf ck of the prisoner is gradually
pressed lack i gainst the post, the flat iron is
drawn tighter and tighter against the throat,
blood starts f i om the mouth and nostrils, the
tongue is forced out over' tho chin and the
mau dies in tl o most horrible agony.
The execut oner, w ho stands behind the
victim, in fuli view of every one, must have
an exceeding y pesuliar mind, to say the
least. Fortui ately, a black cap is drawn
completely o-er the head and facoof the
condemned, cud the fearful contortions of
his face cannc t be seen, but one can readily
imagine how i he face looks as tho iron collar
slowly chokes the life out of tho body.
Presently a procession of about a dozen
black roled priests, several acolytes and a
delegation f-m the Society of Peace and
Charity came moving 6lowly up the avenue,
and turned into the juil to give tho prisoner
the last consolations of his religion. Thev
carried a li.rge silken bauner, heavily
weighted and decorated with pure silver em
broidery and fllagrpe work, in the center of
which was a mot artistically executed oil
painting of tiie Virgin Mary, while the aco
lyte? carried crucifixes and a pail of holy
water, all of tolid silver.
The procession passed iuto tho jail 3-ard to
the little chal, where the prisoner sat un
der guard w aiting for tho final summons.
And, oh, what a pitiful sight ho presented!
Promptly nt 8 o'clock to the second a
small liell in the jail yard sounded and a
guard appeared with a pair of heavy hand
cuffs, which were quickly clasped upon the
wrists of tho trembling prisoner. He was
lifted to his feet, but seemed too weak to
walk, nnd wr s supported ou either side by a
jail guard. Near him stood a priest, who
Thispcred words of encouragement to him
occasionally, and a procession was formed
fortne march to the scaffold. In advance
walked an altar boy wlrh a large boll, which
he tolled mo lotonously as be moved along,
and theu can e the prisoner aud guards, fol
lowed by the priest aud acolytes bearing the
beautiful silver banner. On each side marched
a file of soldiers, and the Jail officials and a
few privileged spectators brought up the
rear. The solemn procession moved slowly
out of the t hapel through the jail yard, a
distance of perhaps twenty yards, and into
tho outer yarl to the main gate, about forty
yards f urthei , and down the roadway to the
field. At thn point the commander of th
military placed himself at the bead of tho
column, and marched with it to the foot of
the steps leading to the scaffold.
The executioner, dressed in an ordinary
business suit, had already reached bia post,
had given tho screw lever a turn or two to
see if it was in proper working order, and
bad placed the rojies so that the prisoner
could be quit kly bound to the upright beam.
He threw opt n the iron throat clasp, hung
his bat on th' top of the post and was ready
to proceed w th his part of tho transaction.
SNATCHED FROM DEATH.
Suddenly there was a movement in the
crowd near the jail entrance and a man was
seen working bis way toward the scaffold.
The lines of soldiers opened and Senor Pinto,
one of the a ds or "ayudantes" of the gov
ernor general, rushed into full view shouting:
"Stopl Su pi In the name of her majesty."
Probably the most dramatic scene lever
witnessed in real life then followed. As
Senor Pinto hurried across the field tha
priests on tho acfcffold knew at once what had
occurred, an 1 they set up a wild shout:
"He lives! Long live the quoenl"
"You're 11 t to die; tho queen has pardoned
you!" some i ne shouted in the prisoner's ear,
and he sank to the floor iu a dead faint.
Then the vast multitude bean to realize
what had occurred, and from 10,000 throats
arose the wi d cry:
"He lives! Long live the queen!"
"Vival VivSH V'ivaiir
Then the priests raised the bewildered
prisoner on 1 heir shoulders, and he passion
ately kissed ;ho image of the Virgin on the
beautiful bi.nner, while the crowd raised a
deafening sLout of:
"Vival Viva!! Viva!!!"
He had at last realized that he was not to
die, and his tear stained face beamed with
joy and gratitude. The crowd, now released
from restraint, cried and shouted, and gave
vent to its feelings in every possible way.
The march from the scaffold back to the jail
was quickly done, the thousands of spectators
following c osely behind, shouting lustily
uutil the o iter gates wore closed in their
laces, and then the intense excitement began
to decrease. The crowd soon dispersed, and
within a few hours all traces of the exciting
dvent had leen removed. Manilla Cor. St.

AFRAID OF IT.
A Correspondent Thinks itl'nwlseto
Dtapenae with Electors and Vote
Direct ror Prealdent.
Editor A bous :
Rural, Jan. 4. The clamor fordoing
away with the present manner of electing
the president and vice president of these
United 8tates is n,ot made under proper
information. It looks at first sight as
though it would be better to choose by
the popular voice of the people and not
by states. But when we come to exam
ine it closely there is a vital principle in
volved in the electoral system. By it we
have two sovereignties; that is the" sover
eignty of the people, and that of the
states. This is what no republics have
had before us. Tbey either had that of
the people alone, or that of the state
alone. Our chief magistrate is elected by
the states. The states send state electors,
the electors at large represent the state,
and those that stand for the members
of congress, the people. Now, if you
abolish the present system, you
destroy the United States senate,
which will leave but one sovereignity.
It is always best in a representative sys
tem to have check and balances and by
our present one this object is obtained.
It is better to have a dual:stic system for
the perpetuity of a srovernment than to
have a single one; for if but one whether
by tbe state or by the people, either
method is liable to supercede the powers
vested in it. It is not out of the way to
say that not more than one in fifty look
at the existing idea of changing our press
ent system to a popular one, with a
knowledge of the dangerous consc
quences that would emanate from it.
Our system of electing by states is not
complete by any means, but it should te
amended cautiously so that no suddeu
change should be felt by it. By the press
ent mode a state can choose her electors
in any form her legislature may direct.
It may elect them itself or direct the peo
ple to do it and no power can stop it.
The legislatures of states have all direct
ed that the electors shall be elected by the
vote of the people. But not until 188J
did all of them do so. If the popular
electors were chosen by congressional
districts, it might be a fairer test of our
present system. Then the states could
elect the electors at large by the popular
vote of the state. This would preserve
both sovereignties and thus continue the
perpetuity of our republican system. But
whenever we elect by popular votes, tbe
states will lone their power and we will
have no check ou the popular sovereigns
ty. It will not be Jong till our govern
ment will become a centralized power
Then our fair fabric will gradually crum
ble and we will become an anarchy in
stead of a free republic.

commenced using it, and the pain is a
